A beautiful 29 degree Sunday afternoon sampling wine and people watching in a great location- frozen yogurt across the road and a great Thai restaurant two minutes away- perfect spot in London from a regular visitor

You can sample over thirty wines in about six self-service tasting machines, they also serve cheese plate, bread, olives and some pate. It is a great way to choose the wine you like and spend a casual evening chatting with friends. Upstairs (where the tasting machines are) are very few places to sit so we ended up standing all evening. Downstairs seating is available but the decor is not great and you have to go up a flight of stairs for each tasting glass.

Love the wine tasting machines, a great way to taste a large selection of wine in small doses! Friendly staff and a great atmosphere.

Perfect little place for a friendly catch-up. Always relaxed, welcoming and happy staff. Great selection of wine and fizz. Like the hidden basement and delicious bread and oil.
Happily recommend.

We were looking for somewhere to have a snack and some wine. This place ticked the boxes. There are different things you can do here, either get a card with money on it and sample a variety of wines, or order a bottle to enjoy. There aren't many places to sit on the road level and the floor below is a little basic, but I quite liked that. You can order meats and/or cheeses to go with the drink. You have to go and order at the till at the front but the food is delivered to where you are seated.

This is a great concept and I have been going back!
